What do you reckon? Will this 850L sell by big enough numbers to the A2 brigade?

Right out of left-field comes this from our friends at top Japanese magazine YoungMachine – a CRF850L.

Designed as a direct competitor to the F850GS from BMW, the Honda is rumoured to be a seriously pared-down version of the CRF1100L Africa Twin and is targeting the newer rider with an A2 licence-friendly version.

Currently illustrating the article with a computer-generated image, the 850L looks a bit… well… drab at the moment but with the spoked wheels, large seat and larger Africa Twin-esque riding position, it could sell well.


According to our friends overseas, this is on the cards to appear in 2021.
